Rated 5 out of 5 by MightyKTC from Old Reliable I've been brewing with Mr. Beer for over 6 years and there's only two of the standard recipes that I would opt to drink as is without any additions because they are that good - the Weissbier and the Porter. Delicious straight up as is or with adding additions such as vanilla, coffee, peanut butter brewer's extract, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eriebrewer from Cold steeped I brewed this one with chocolate grain I cold steeped for 24 hours. Slight chocolate flavor and a smooth dark beer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Deano from Directions I made a mistake brewing my beer and it tasts bad. I think you need to take several people who know nothing about brewing and watch them brew a batch. Then write directions for the process based on their mistakes and include them in each receipie batch. I'm glad I tried it but won't be brewing my own mistakes again. Your kits say they are easy and I did look at your videos but they did not help me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy T from Quality Quaff Although i can't drink beer in the quantities I used to due to getting older and heavier, I simply cannot give up Mr Beer products. This American Porter is one of my favorites (yes, I have several favorites) and I try to have a batch or two always in the fermentation process. There is something special about having a nice cold beer you made yourself, especially when they are this good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by T Don from Mr Beer FTW Truth be told, I havent brewed this yet but is in my 'brew backlog' due to the amazing sales that Mr Beer puts on. Based on previous experiences with Mr Beer, this wil be a fun brew to create and enjoy. The service that Mr Beer provides is top notch and havent been let down yet. Follow the directions, experiment when you're ready and understand the brew methods.. and ENJOY!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by vermont from Disappointed The directions on the can and the directions in the box conflicted with each other. My batch came out flat, I suspect because it was over-primed, as per the instructions. Over time - it has been bottled for a month now - it improves with carbonation. I prefer recipes that use the 2-step brewing process over this bucket-to-bottle one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike from As fine a porter as I've had I used three cans of the American Porter extract in a partial mash recipe I put together picking out the grain at the home brewing store I do a lot of my business. the grain;3 lbs Barley, Raw (1.7 SRM) Grain 1 26.9%, 2 lbs Caramel-Crystal Malt - 20L 1 lbs Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 3 9.0 % 1 lbs Coffee Malt (150.0 SRM) Grain 4 9.0 %. I also used the BrewMax LME SoftPack - Robust Extract and the 9.1 oz BrewMax LME SoftPack - Smooth Extract. This is an all grain recipe that I've done in the past, for this recipe I cut back on the pounds of each grain to accommodate the addition of the porter and soft pack extracts. Not the complete recipeMr. Beer's American Porter on it's own, is dynamite, I am a porter aficionado ever since my first taste of Deschutes Black Butte Porter. Mr. Beer's American Porter and the soft packs brought this recipe to another level. It is hands down the best beer I've made in 10+ years of brewing. My first batch was a Mr. Beer LBK Brew kit, I've made a lot of beer in that time.We have a brew pub where I live and they encourage home brewers to bring their wears down for a professional critique, this is one I'll be taking for review. My friends and son agree, I out did myself on this one, I have, Mr. Beer's American Porter to thank for the fine reviews. If you haven't tried this porter on it's own you need too. Thank you Mr. Beer.

I have three cans to make six gallons. What would I taste if I used all three cans but reduced the total volume to five gallons? Too sweet? Too bitter?

Asked by: david toler
It'll make those roasty notes pop, but the cans usually make a 3.7% beer, by themselves without Boosters or LME packs. At 6-gallons you're looking at 3.7% but at 5-gallons it's 4.3% Either way, it'll be dry, but easily drinkable.

I want to dry-hop a six-gallon batch of American Porter. Which hops are used in this extract when it's made? Thank you...

Asked by: david toler
This extract contains Pride of Ringwood. This extract takes very well to noble hop varieties.
